NU7441, also known as KU-57788, is a highly potent and selective DNA-PK inhibitor (IC50=14 nM), exhibiting ATP-competitive inhibition kinetics. NU7441 increased the cytotoxicity of ionizing radiation and etoposide in SW620, LoVo, and V3-YAC cells but not in V3 cells, confirming that potentiation was due to DNA-PK inhibition. NU7441 substantially retarded the repair of ionizing radiation-induced and etoposide-induced DSB.

NU7441 (0.5 to 10 µM) inhibits the growth of liver cancer HepG2 cells dose- and time-dependently. NU7441 reduces pDNA-PKcs (S2056) protein expression in liver cancer cells. Furthermore, double treatment of NU7441 and 60Coγ IR affects DNA damage repair. NU7441 is solvent-exposed in BRD4, this inhibitor can be classified as a Type I BRD inhibitor. NU7441 reduces the frequency of NHEJ while increasing the rate of HDR following Cas9-mediated DNA cleavage.

Furthermore, double treatment of KU-57788 and 60Coγ IR affects DNA damage repair. KU-57788 weakly inhibits BRD4 and BRDT with IC50s of 1 μM and 3.5 μM, respectively. KU-57788 is solvent-exposed in BRD4, this inhibitor can be classified as a Type I BRD inhibitor. KU-57788 reduces the frequency of NHEJ while increasing the rate of HDR following Cas9-mediated DNA cleavage.
